NSIR-RT Safety Advisories

The National System of Incident Reporting – Radiation Treatment (NSIR-RT) is a tool developed by CIHI and CPQR allowing participating centres to report, track and analyze incidents from their local program, and anonymously from other Canadian centres.

Although CPQR reviews incident submissions to inform the radiation treatment community on important patterns and trends, and make recommendations to minimize or mitigate risk, incident submissions are not monitored for the purpose of identifying specific incidents warranting dissemination.

CPQR may respond to requests to disseminate safety advisories from provincial cancer agency leadership, where there may be action required by radiation treatment programs or the broader cancer community.

CPQR has made these safety advisories available online to encourage a culture of continuous quality improvement.
